Transcriptions #28: Duo Pacis

725.00

24" x 18" x 3/4”

Original mixed media painting on canvas

Duo Pacis ("Two of Peace" in Latin) is built around two prayers for peace: The Peace Prayer of Saint Francis and an ancient mantra from a Hindu Upanishad text, Om Asato Ma Sadgamaya. Both seem to be very similar in focus.

You’ll find two cutouts in this highly textured painting. The book, made from canvas cloth, is recessed within the top opening and sewn in place. The cut canvas in the window below is folded like an open shutter. This cutout houses an element I call a "prayer pocket"… a tiny 2" x 1-1/2" folded piece of painted canvas.

The color palette and painting process was something of a departure for me. I was stretching my creative muscles and trying something new.
